I was sold a box of 25 of these cigars here in Malta which only cost me €42.00.

Now you get what you pay for and I usually smoke Partagas, R & J, Ramon Allones and other quality cigars.

I considered this cigar to be weak in earthy and tobacco tastes and with sugary herbaceous flavours. The cigar burned quickly and with lots of smoke.

Would I purchase this cigar again? The answer is an emphatic NO, well only if it were given to me free. Otherwise I shall stick with quality cigars in future.

Quintero is one of the least known Cuban cigar marcas. Among several vitolas that are available, I found the Londres Extra, a 4.8 x 40 mareva, to be the most interesting. At approximately $3 each (online), the price/quality ratio is particularly interesting. Quintero Londres Extra are usually well-constructed, with a self-correcting burn, easy draw and ample smoke. The flavor is bold (wood, leather) and consistent from start to finish, I would classify this as a medium- to full-bodied smoke. The cigar might taste ‘green’ if it is less than 6 months old; the recommended aging time is 1-2 years.
